Antispam Fund Aids AntiSpammers
from the good-to-know dept
The SpamCon Foundation is apparently setting up an antispam legal fund to help pay for lawsuits filed by spammers. This is good to know, should that threatend lawsuit ever show up at my door. Their first case is to defend spews.org against charges that they’ve unfairly put people on their blacklist. We talked about this lawsuit last month. Since SPEWS is simply building a list (which may or may not be too aggressive in “checking in” spammers), it’s unclear how that’s illegal. It’s the ISPs, themselves, that have decided block mail sent from addresses on the SPEWS list.
